An Emotional Heimlich

Within the span of ten minutes I went from being extremely worried to profoundly relieved. Yesterday afternoon I received good news about not one, but two troubling issues. My brain had been in worst case scenario mode - which it automatically switches over to whenever anything serious comes up - so I’m still trying to process this new, positive data.

  1. My Dad is OK. Recently he’d had some bloodwork done that was red-flagged. A biopsy had been scheduled but further lab work indicates that everything is just fine and there is no need for it. Phew.
  2. A couple of months ago I learned that the little man’s school had lost their lease. They need to move in June and the new school year begins in July (it is a year-round program). Yesterday we finally found out where the new school site will be and, thankfully, it’s one I’m super stoked about. So much so I’m taking it as a sign that I should finally put my house up for sale.

This will be tough, not just because the housing market stinks, but also because there’s so much prep-work to be done before I can even put this house on the market. But if it managed to sell I could buy another house. One in the same neighborhood as my son’s school. A neighborhood that is charming, within easy biking distance of most of my friends, and not too far from where I work. Life could be so much easier. Especially after the new 35W Bridge opens.

    Glad your dad’s ok. And the move sounds soooo exciting. I could use a move myself. To a different city/state/country.
